DECIDING ON HOW TO SCALE YOUR CLOUD CONSULTING BUSINESS FAST IS NO EASY FEAT!

Believe me, I tried and learned the hard way.

Well done for what you have built so far. 

You have ambitions to scale faster and further, but what is the next smartest move?

Go alone and figure it out yourself?

Or work with someone who has been in your shoes? 

There is no perfect answer, but there is an answer. 

So let’s have a call to talk it through so you make a decision that gives you progress not perfection. 

As doing nothing is not helping your family, you or your team.

You have a few ways of making revenue. 

One is through consulting which is predominantly your time. 

Another through services, where you are slowly extracting yourself from and handing over to the team. 

But what is the next move to double your revenue, pay yourself more and have more flexibility? 

You have some ideas, but are they the right options? 

Owners I speak to typically look at three options:

  • Build a community

  • Build hybrid training

  • Launch products

Hard decisions to make, especially if you haven’t done it before. 

Then once you make the call, how do you implement it? 

Do you recruit, pay and 3rd party or build capability using your existing team. 

Again hard decisions. 

This is where I can help.

STEP ONE

Fill out a 5min application to see if you are the right fit.

STEP TWO

If you are, we have a call and I ask you:

  • Where you are

  • Where you want to be

  • What is needed to get you there

Having learnt from making some good and not so good decisions when scaling my cloud consulting business, I created a roadmap/ jigsaw puzzle (see below) of what is needed to scale a business like yours. 

Not from a book, but from blood, sweat and tears. 

STEP THREE

If we agree that I can help, we will talk more about how. 

If we decide you want to go alone, I will share my experiences to help you.

If we think you need help from someone else, I will recommend them to you.

REMEMBER

The most important outcome is you getting clarity on what the next steps are to help you scale.

DIAGNOSE

Having had a transplant, I learnt from my doctors how to diagnose before prescribing. 

That is all I will be doing on the first call.

PREP

It would be great if you could do two more actions before we meet.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING

I went from a solo operator to selling a cloud consulting business to a google partner – life could not be better.  I could not have done this without the support of Paul.  His experience across corporate and small business was invaluable.
Scott Gellatly, CEO of itGenius
Matt Yahes
“I came from a consulting background and own some e-commerce websites. I wanted to build a sales system fast to achieve 100 new clients for my business in less than 12 months.  What attracted me to Paul was his ability to convert his corporate sales experience into helping owners like me. I didn’t have 3 to 4 years to learn it myself and Paul’s program in 12 months delivered exactly what I needed.”
Matt Yahes, CEO of Extend Your Team
Simon Hutchings
“My experience was as senior finance person in a large bank –  handy but not equipped to scale a consulting business.  Working with Paul saw me create a solid business which generated a $500K deal.”
Simon Hutchings, Founder of Hudl Analytics
“Paul has been a mentor to me for a number of years now. During that time Bean Ninjas has doubled in revenue due to implementing Paul’s system, and I’ve also brought on a business partner. The support and advice from Paul around these big decisions have been invaluable.”
Meryl Johnston, Founder of Bean Ninjas
Sholto Macpherson
“Paul Higgins is unique among the plethora of business mentors because he brings three things that you never find together. Raw data and results from marketing experiments that Paul tests in the process of growing his own business; tips on discipline & self-control for avoiding shiny balls and process excellence and execution thanks to decades in corporate.“
Sholto Macpherson, Spalla AI
“Paul is a thoughtful business leader who genuinely cares about the members in his network. His keen eye for efficiency and ability to systemise even the most chaotic of businesses into a balanced, manageable and profitable state is quite remarkable. If you’re an overwhelmed business owner, I strongly recommend you work with Paul.
Matt Dillon, Director of Boss Projects
Leah Mether
Having someone to bounce ideas off, seek recommendations from and have accountability with is essential to small business success. For me, one of the key people in my support and mentoring team who does just that is Paul Higgins. Paul’s guidance, advice and support is invaluable and his knowledge, extensive. Paul is responsive and always keen to help you achieve your best in business. I highly recommend making him part of your team to help you achieve next-level success.
Leah Mether, CEO of Methmac Communications Pty Ltd
Paul is an inspirational and collaborative leader and coach. I value Paul’s input both personally and for my business. He always gives me honest feedback and looks for ways to add value to our business. One way Paul is different to other mentors is he quickly identifies where improvement is needed and is very specific about what needs to change on a micro-level, including tools, techniques and/or suppliers to help. Then he doesn’t let it go!
Andrew Hahn, Founder and CEO of Marair
Linh Podetti
Since working with Paul, I have seen tremendous growth in my number of leads from Linkedin. Paul’s program equips me with the right knowledge and skills about Linkedin marketing and I get to work with other amazing business owners in the program. Paul is a genuine and authentic entrepreneur. He cares about my happiness and success over profits. I highly recommend Paul as your business mentor if you are looking to grow leads for your business.
Linh Podetti, Founder of Outsourcing Angel
Paul Higgins is my go-to LinkedIn expert. I was lucky enough to spend 45 minutes discussing what works, what doesn’t, and where I need to optimize my profile and content.  I can hand-on-heart say that this is a masterclass you don’t want to miss.
Allan Dib, Managing Director of Successwise
Dr Grace Ng (née Lai)
Paul Higgins, particularly on the sales and marketing front, is in a league of his own. He’s an exceptionally clear thinker and communicator. He leverages his experience in both corporate and small business. Paul has an instinct of knowing exactly what you need as a business owner at that particular time. He has the ability to ask key incisive questions and quickly understand the business model. I’m really pleased to have Paul along on this journey.
